Thread Name: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
Subject: RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
Jean Ritchie moved with grace between worlds, and with a strong spirit. Aside from her music, she was humbly and mindfully aware that she was both ambassador and advocate to the rest of the USA, and even internationally, for our much maligned Appalachian region, so subjected to stereotypes and pity.

This old hillbilly gonna miss you, Jean.
